I took the tank out today, I needed to replace the fuel hoses, although I could probably have just about reached them with the front of the tank lowered, I decided to take it out and paint it. This also allowed me to clean off the floor above and rust treat it.
The camper is currently on axle stands waiting for the tank to dry. The top is very rusty, I treated it with FE123 can't say it impressed me it is thick to apply and dries with what looks like a latex skin.
I then used Bonda primer on top and then some black paint I had lying around, should slow it down.
There are a few very small holes above the tank in the floor will fill them, they are too small to affect the floor strength.
Should soon have the bottom painted and I will then spray some Waxoyl over the whole lot.
